Product Description

Large scale projects like this high-rise building present a set of unique challenges.

– How to model everything efficiently?
– How to fill all the floors with details?
– How to model background buildings quickly?
– How to add people?
– How to add moving traffic?
– How to light rooms randomly?
– How to use render elements to composite a beautiful image?
… and so on

In this tutorial, I give you a demonstration on how I approach this subject.
Starting from a very basic 3d sketch, I transform it into a live city scene. Check out the image below to see the progression!

The image below is my final result.

The final scene and photoshop file are included with the tutorial.
The scene was made in 3ds max 2014 with vray 3.0, but it should work in older versions of both programs as well (max 2011+)
Although I highly recommend upgrading to the latest Vray for it’s speed gains!

    Very interesting tutorial

    I was downloading your tutorials but I’m a Muslim our scholars said it’s not permissible no matter What it was
    So I stopped doing that and I deleted all the tutorials Alhamdullah Thanks to god

    In future I will buy them inshaallah.

    I too stopped downloading your premium tutorials,
    the reason was the same what Omer Kako mentioned above, it felts me like, I’m not downloading a nice tutorial, but stealing all yours time & effort.

    And in return i purchased your 3 premiums :) [Ornaments, Kitchen and Dining]
    I was following your website since “Neo classic table”

    Insha Allah [On God’s willing]
    I will start to buy alllllllll

    And to let you know, if someone still steals from you, knowing all your problems, it will never worth them.

    Thanks for all your free & premium tutorials

    How works new payment system? Suggested price: 39 euro, minimum 1,99 it means that I can buy the same full tutorial as everyone for price of 1,99 euro instead of 39 or more?

    • :

      Yes, if you want, you can pay 1.99
      In that case all the money goes to paypal, amazon aws, accountants, taxes, etc and I get a couple of cents, but you get the tutorial same as everyone else.

    Hi Omer.k.

    I am a Muslim too, I dont understand which scholar has asked you not to download educational graphic work from the internet. I am baffled!

    Please be explicit about this.

    Ok I get it,

    I was actually feeling the same too, I agree with Akbar, I hope to buy a lot of stuff from you.

    Thankyou ever so much for everything.

    I have all of your premium tutorials, but never purchase them. And have learned so many things from them. Whatever i’m earning today, i think your tutorials have also a great part behind them. And this approach is the best thing i have ever seen.
    I have just purchase my first tutorial and will never going to download them by wrong way anymore and now i don’t have to wait for months for someone to put it on internet.

    Thank man….thanks for all these great tutorial….

    Dear Austris,

    You should start considering selling physical DVDs too since most educational institutions including libraries have no other option but to have this kind of knowledge on their shelves.

    Firt To all Muslim above,

    It is not permissible to make copies of software, program or files whose authors have forbidden the making of copies without their permission, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The Muslims are bound by their conditions.” And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever reaches a permissible thing first has more right to it.” It does not matter whether the author of the program is a Muslim or not, because the rights of who aren’t muslim to be respected like the rights of a Muslim.

    Second To Austris,

    I am agree with what you have do and I hope all people try support you especially those who have benefited your tutorials and who have got your tutorials for free from anywhere.

    Best Regards,
    Sameh Ebrahim

    Hi AUSTRIS !

    I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you a lot ! I am a very big fan of your work, I have followed almost all of your tutorials I think (From “the chesterfield Sofa scene on cgblog !) so far : You are an EXCEPTIONAL TEACHER AND SO PROFESSIONAL IN YOUR EXPLANATION AND IN THE WAY YOU MANAGE YOURS 3D PROJECTS !!!! IT’S UNIQUE ! AND MOREOVER SO GENEROUS ! THANKS FOR SHARING ALL OF YOUR FABULOUS SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE !

    Besides, please, Have your ever heard of any problems/bugs going on with caustic module from Vray 3.0 ? I just tried it on very basic exterior pool scene (vraysun/sky)/basic settings…nothing appears at render time.

    • :

      Hi Didier,

    Hello Austris. Sorry, but does not know much English, so I use a translator. Love what you do. After changes to your site the opportunity to purchase your products, paying the lowest price. If understand correctly, it was possible to determine how much the very evaluate your product, is it true? I am a student and want to further develop as much as possible to buy your lessons. I think that the free download from the Internet would not be correct, in relation to you. I think that your work should be adequately paid. Thanks in advance for your reply.

    • :

      Hi Denis,
      There is a minimum price to cover the costs of hosting and other expenses.
      You can also choose to pay more if you think the tutorials are worth it and you can afford it.
      In any case, I appreciate all contributions :)

    Hey marium,

    I am not here to argue that whether you buy stuff from here or not. Whether 3D Development is valid/Invalid in our religion ISLAM!
    I must say, this guy deserve appreciation because Knowledge is power!

    As per sayings of our HOLY PROPHET, “Knowledge is the inherited asset, Take it from whichever source it comes”.

    So, Being a Muslim and according to this saying, I respect this guy a lot.

    Stay blessed and always happy.

    Hi Austris,

    I wanted to thank you once again for this marvelous Tutorial !!!

    Besides, I’d like to take the opportunity here to ask you a very important question for me, please :

    I’d like to know your feeling about Cinema4D vs 3Ds Max in Archiviz ? Because we hear so much about it nowadays, saying that 3Ds max is getting older an older compared to C4D which should be more user-friendly : Is C4D as much good as 3Ds max in Archiviz renders, or is it more suitable for entertaiment/multimédia production ?

    Looking forward for new exciting tutorials and many thanks Austris !

    Some people misunderstood me

    I didn’t say 3d architectures is not permissible
    I have 6 years experience in 3d and I also made many tutorials for free

    I said I was downloading your tutorials in illegal way without you know
    From websites but our islamic scholars said it’s not permissible to take something it’s not yours so I stopped downloading the tutorials in illegal way and am waiting to buy them in fufute inshaAllah

    If this man don’t see me Allah (God) sees me Allah knows.
